I also thought of using this pattern and altering it for maternity wear. My approach would be a little different(cutting the pattern at empire line, spreading the lower part), but its great to see yours! Thanks for the review.

Looks great. Best of luck for the next two months. And for the next 16 years.

Considering you are 'still new at this' I think you did a great job with the alterations, especially the maternity alteration. Bravo to you.

Your shirt looks wonderful! By the way, ever heard of a belly band? You wear it around your belly and it looks like an underlayered shirt. Works great for those last few months when everything is too short.

Wow! Great suggestions on your blog for maternity modifications. Great way to avoid the tent look! Beautiful job on all these tops!

I think your new top looks GREAT, and I say whip out a couple more now that you've got your pattern altered. :o)
